Do you have any christian names, dates etc?  I can find 21 banwells in Oxfordshire so far so would like to narrow it down if possible!

sharon
Northumberland - Addison, Bowles, Kirkup, Lowes, Mason, Patterson, Richley, Venus, Wardle, Williams
Durham - Pears, Robertson, Richley, richelieu, Summerell
Norfolk and Essex - Bowles, Ninham, Wiseman
Glos - Summerell, Williams

I think i have found Harriet in the IGI but it gives it as 1801, not 02. If it her then her parents were John and Mary and there were at least 2 brothers as follows:

HARRIET BANWELL
Baptised; 20 OCT 1801††   
Chastleton, Oxford

WILLIAM BANWELL
Baptised; 20 OCT 1801†
Chastleton, Oxford

CONGREVE BANWELL
Baptised 17 JAN 1810†
Chastleton, Oxford

All with Parents:
Father:†   JOHN BANWELL    
Mother:†   MARY    †

There are quite a few Banwells born 1760s and 1770s there too.

I will see if any of them crop up in the census.

Hi again,

In the light of the above, I have had another look at the census and can't find Harriet at all. I suspect she married pre 1861 so would not be listed as a Banwell then.

William is also absent, but I believe Congreve is as follows, widowed and living in Buckinghamshire with his wife's family:

1861
Ann Raper      1812    Foxcott, Buckinghamshire, England   Head       Foxcott    Buckinghamshire Farmer† †Widow
Coryreve Banwell   1815    Charleton, Oxfordshire, England      Brother-in-law    Foxcott    Buckinghamshire Farmers Bailiff? Widower
Sarah Saunders   1816    Colinghbury, Northamptonshire, Engl   Cousin       Foxcott    Buckinghamshire
Frank Raper      1838    Brackley, Northamptonshire, England   Nephew    Foxcott    Buckinghamshire
Camilla Bennett      1844    Stow, Buckinghamshire, England   Niece       Foxcott    Buckinghamshire
Helen Banwell      1848    Chilton, Buckinghamshire, England   Niece       Foxcott    Buckinghamshire
Hannah Smith      1848    Gawcott, Buckinghamshire, England   Servant    Foxcott    Buckinghamshire

RG9/877 Folio 4
Page 1


I also found his death in 1871:

BANWELL, Congreve
Aged 61
March 1871
Buckingham†
Volume 3a
Page 415



Bearing in mind his, his brother William's and their father John's names. I believe these 4 men all born Great Haseley Oxforshire may be the sons of one of them:

From the 1861 census:

William Banwell      1828    Great Haseley, Oxfordshire, England   Head    Neithrop    Oxfordshire

John N Banwell      1835    Great Haseley, Oxfordshire, England   Head    Middleton Stoney    Oxfordshire

From the 1881 census:

Charles W. Banwell   abt 1831 Great Haseley, Oxfordshire, England   Head    113 Gloster Road, Horfield, Gloucestershire, England

Congreve Banwell   abt 1837 GT Haseley, Oxfordshire, England   Head    Stanley Rd, Cowley, Oxfordshire, England†

Hope the above is of use to you,
Helen

Hi OP,

On the off chance youíre still active, Iíve been researching the same family as you.

Iíve got more info on the Banwells than you had 14 years ago! But hopefully for me, you might have carried on your research and might be able to help unpick my problems with them  :P
